Val’s Toy Chest- House in the Woods

Greetings toy fans and column readers! I’m writing this from a house in the woods in upstate New York as I take a well-needed break from the hustle and bustle of the city. I still wanted to share the new toys and assorted paraphernalia coming this week.

The company with the most output this week is clearly DC Collectibles. There is a bevy of items arriving in store Wednesday. Kicking things off is the long awaited Batman: Black and White statue of Batgirl as depicted in her current run illustrated by Babs Tarr. Flash TV fans can look forward to the brand new Reverse Flash prop replica ring(size 12.5 only)as well as a 1:6 scale statue depicting series star Grant Gustin as the Flash. Speaking of props, the awesome Mother Box prop replica with lights and sound should also be in this week. The Wonder Woman Art of War statue line continues with a new stylized piece designed by Robert Valley that was used in the DC Nation Animated Shorts. Cover Girls of the DC Universe will issue a new piece featuring Red Lantern Bleez and we’ve also got a new Catwoman bust and a DC Icons statue of Green Lantern expected to arrive. Do you like the different banks we carry that are found in the very front of the store? Monogram is the manufacturer on the majority of those specifically the DC and Marvel ones. They’ve also got a pair of releases this week. First off is Deadpool in his red and black look that complements the grey and black one we got in last week. Harley Quinn is the other piece. Both are not the typical bust style that Monogram has done in the past but rather just a giant head that looks to hold more money than past offerings.

Funko POPs expected to arrive soon are the Harry Potter Series Ron Weasley and Dumbledore pieces along with Marvel’s Agent Carter from ABC’s eponymous TV show. Recent Hot Toys arrivals include the Iron Man Mark XLI Bones version and Electro from Amazing Spider-Man 2. The single packed Rocket Raccoon should be on its way soon as well. Finally in comics this week, DC Bombshells issue #1 will be out along with more Bombshells variants for select titles. Plus there is a new Garbage Pail Kids one-shot that sees the Garbage Gang Hollywood bound.

That’s it for me this week. Catch you in next week’s column or in the store.
